I am digitising many VHS tape videos to store on an external 3 TB HDD.
Now in the initial pass I have the unedited video on that HDD. Then I edit out bits and pieces and save that to the same HDD and delete the unedited version.
Now, am I making gaps and wasting that space on the HDD where the deleted videos were or what?
I have read that defragging in this situation does not regain much if any space and is not worth doing -
Can anyone clarify this point please.
